Craft Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

5 comments

There’s nothing like the holiday season for unleashing the craftiness in us all. Crafters and quilters can revel in a season when the spirit of making falls on kids making advent paper chains and dads stringing popcorn and cranberries with their daughters alike.

Of course, it can also be hard to find the time for crafting in the middle of all the season’s events and to-do’s. I have yet to whip out that elusive Christmas quilt or pull together the perfect tree skirt. It seems like every year my Christmassy accomplishments always fall short of my vision.

But the best part about most Christmas crafts is that they keep!  And so, little-by-little, every year my crafted stash of decorative delights gets just a little bit bigger.

Here’s a few of my favorite Christmas crafts from the last few years…

Doily Snowflake Table Runner
